Exhibit A: Products

 1.0 Rosa Fair Adversarial Networks (FAN) Product

Algorithms make decisions impacting our daily lives more and more. However, instead of being an objective arbiter, they seem to replicate human biases in respect to race, gender and other protected characteristics.

The current solutions to this problem are not working, they replace discrimination with negative discrimination, producing more problems than they’ve solve.

illumr offers a tool (Rosa FAN) that removes bias from any dataset before it is analysed – leaving no opportunity for the analysis or Machine Learning to produce algorithms that are biased, while avoiding negative discrimination that is often damaging.

Rosa FAN is delivered as a free SaaS-based trial with limited uses per Customer.

2.0 Columbus Topological Data Analysis (TDA) Product

In the study of complex systems, such as financial markets or biology, it is often impractical to develop novel hypotheses from lower-level principles (i.e. psychology of individual market actors, interactions of cells etc).

Instead, the hypotheses have to be inspired by the data itself – by Exploratory Data Analysis. However, the dimensionality (number of columns) of interesting datasets is usually too high for human perception to deal with.

Manifold Learning is an area of Machine Learning that aims to render datasets in their lower-dimensional intrinsic space exposing the fundamental principles governing the dataset. Current methods, however, have severe limitations caused by the assumptions they make about the data that are almost never met.

illumr possesses a unique Topological Data Analysis (Columbus TDA) approach to the problem, which is nearly assumption-free, and allows an analyst – without a data science PhD – to deliver useful Exploratory Data Analysis resulting in the generation of new knowledge about real-world datasets.

Columbus TDA is delivered as a desktop-tool trial product with limited time per Customer.

 

Exhibit B: Services

 1.0 illumr Consulting (iC)

Sometimes, it is impossible to train Neural Networks (NN) models “out-of-the-box” as they often fail in real-world applications.

Illumr’s unique set of proprietary tools negate this issue.

Organisations can leverage their data to identify threats or opportunities for a competitive edge.

For example, these signals could indicate:

  • emerging patterns of fraud
  • new threat vectors in cyber space
  • a subpopulation of clinic trials data that could give a better cancer outcome

Illumr’s bespoke services solution is a customisable Neural Network based upon illumr’s unique research in:

1) Pre-training weights

2) Selecting the optimal network architecture

3) Selecting the optimal learning hyper-parameters

The results for our customers is a state of the art solution, resulting in fast and accurate predictive performance for a significant competitive edge.

 

Exhibit C: Trial Scope, Fees and Success/Exit Criteria

1.0 Start Date means the date the Customer agrees to the terms of this Agreement.

2.0 Trial Scope means the use of illumr’s products and services for the trial period.

3.0 Fees means payments for any negotiated illumr Consulting services, notwithstanding, that Columbus TDA and Rosa FAN are offered on a free trial basis with limited time or uses per Customer.
